Summer is a time to be outside and enjoy an extra large dose of invigorating sunshine, basking in the warmth of the sun’s rays. While spending your summer in the sun can make for a great time, it may also be doing some serious damage to your skin. Even if you are applying multiple layers of sunscreen, the UV rays of the sun can still cause long-lasting damage that can cause your skin to dry out and adopt an uneven complexion. If your fun in the sun over summer has resulted in some not so fun sun damage, then you should try a pumpkin peel. Siti Med Spa in San Diego offers pumpkin peels and other cosmetic services and treatments. To learn more or to schedule a consultation, give us a call at (619) 717-8484.

What is a Pumpkin Peel?

Pumpkin is rich in a variety of vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants that are great for your skin, so the pumpkin peel utilizes these nutrients to get your skin looking and feeling great. More specifically, pumpkin is high in potassium, beta-carotene, vitamin A, vitamin C, and zinc. The antioxidants in pumpkin help to fight off free radicals, while some of the acids and enzymes work to exfoliate the skin and improve skin tone. Put it all together and you get a natural peel that will have your skin looking its best.

How Does a Pumpkin Peel Fight Sun Damage?

Pumpkin peels are a perfect Fall cosmetic treatment for a variety of reasons. First of all, it is Thanksgiving and Halloween season, making a pumpkin peel both festive and topical. Second, as previously stated, a pumpkin peel works to reverse the damage the sun has incurred from a summer spent laying on the beach. The antioxidants in a pumpkin peel defend your skin from oxidative damage that can result from sun exposure, and oxidative stress leads to premature aging.

A pumpkin peel is also full of alpha hydroxy acids and beta hydroxy acids that exfoliate the dead outermost cells of your skin that have received the brunt of the damage from the sun. This encourages fresh, young cells to come to the surface

What Other Benefits Does a Pumpkin Peel Offer?

A pumpkin peel not only helps fight the dangerous impact of overexposure of the sun, but also has a litany of other benefits that can help you look youthful and vibrant.
